Actresses like Roja, Khusubhu, Nagma, Hansika even though they started their careers in Telugu, they grew as stars in Tamil and got opportunities with big stars in Telugu as well. Raashi Khanna who was last seen in ‘Jayam’ Ravi’s Adangamaru has been roped in to play as Vijay Sethupathi’s pair in his next with director Vijay Chander of Vaalu and Sketch fame. Vijaya Productions which produced films with many legendary Tamil superstars is bankrolling the film. Musical duo Vivek and Mervin will be composing the music for the untitled film. Comedy actor Soori who took a break after Seema Raja has been roped in to take care of the comic portions. The principal shoot of the film will begin in March, says a source close to the team.
Raashi Khanna debuted with two successful films in Tamil last year – Imaikka Nodigal and Adangamaru. This year she has two more releases and few more opportunities in Tamil. As Telugu offers seem to be dried out almost after Srinivasa Kalyanam, she seems to be building traction in Tamil audiences more. If she can find a huge blockbuster this year or next, she may become the star, she always desires to be! Vijay Sethupathi is currently busy with Seenu Ramasamy’s Maamanithan in which he plays an auto driver. The actor also has Super Deluxe, Sindhubaath and Telugu biggie Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in the pipeline.
